JAM's Paperclip Necklace Debuts in New York City

This month, JAM® takes to the streets of New York City to meet up with locals who celebrate orange and yellow. As the top global fashion capital of the decade, New York City is full of fashion fanatics. North East fashionistas are especially attracted to the vivid colors of the regional fall foliage. In this cool climate, fluffy tree leaves flaunt jewel hues, like ruby-wine and amethyst. Pine trees wear emerald green, snow white crystals, and silver icicles. During New York’s autumn – when and where we caught up with two locals – citrine yellow and Spessartite Garnet orange brighten the streets.

What do different colors symbolize?

Throughout cool months, New Yorkers turn to warm colors that are associated with sunshine.


A powerful color that conveys optimism, orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow.


Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. Yellow captures our attention more than any other color.

Both orange and yellow are associated with joy, creativity, optimism and sunshine.

“This season is a good time to create crafts that brighten holidays. Make a necklace or collage. Get creative!”
